Joost Luiten up 1 shot at Lyoness
ATZENBRUGG, Austria -- Joost Luiten of the Netherlands shot a 4-under 68 Friday to take a one-stroke lead into the third round of the Lyoness Open.
Luiten had three birdies on both the front and back nine, offset by two bogeys, to finish at 11-under 133. He's followed by Paul Waring of England (67), Callum Macaulay of Scotland (66) and Eduardo de la Riva of Spain (69).
Luiten trailed Tom Lewis by two strokes overnight, but the Englishman made five bogeys in his 74.
Defending champion Bernd Wiesberger, at 61st the highest ranked player in the field, had a 71 and dropped to 17th. The Austrian likely needs a top-10 finish to qualify for next week's U.S. Open.
